The law essentially means that working class Brits are banned from marrying (non-EU) foreigners. Yes, you read that correctly. Almost half of the UK population has been stripped of its right to family life.
Students deserve better. That's why NUS is calling on the Home Office to developed clear service standards for their treatment of international students. They need to make it far clearer to applicants what costs and documentation will be required of them and to provide greater flexibility in the case of genuine mistakes.
Earlier this year, in a landmark speech on migration, David Cameron stated: 'We want the brightest and best innovators and entrepreneurs to choose Britain as the best place to start their next businesses'... How well is this route working?
Australia has a skills gap that is holding back the delivery of projects vital to its future prosperity, so it is in the national interest that we utilise skilled labour from other countries to plug those gaps. Blockading Australia from skilled workers, the majority of which will contribute to our knowledge economy and international competitiveness, is an obvious and huge mistake.
I am having a rather challenging time convincing various charities and so called experts in this country that the answer to drug addiction is simple and it is available to anyone in the UK at any time.
If policymakers want to redistribute income through the political process in the face of increased diversity, they have to bring the relevant nodes of redistribution closer to people. Instead of Obamacare or the UK's National Health Service, they ought to be pushing for state-level or regional healthcare systems - as well as for decentralised forms of welfare assistance.
For Romanians living in the UK it is hard to understand why they have became targets in a political and media game they neither want nor need to play. Anti-EU rhetoric and misleading predictions from nearly a decade ago have combined to create a culture of blame which allows misguided stereotypes of 'bad' Romanians to flourish, unchecked.
As an immigrant, I find the debate around immigration unbelievably irritating, especially in the UK. On the basis of most headlines in the British press, it's easy to get the impression that all immigrants exist purely to steal jobs from hapless Brits or scrounge money off our apparently generous welfare system.
I've heard many fellow students at university say they might consider remaining for an extra year in order to obtain a British passport, however the process is not so easy. Here is my take on the matter and a list of difficulties one would face...
As a former trade union member and a working-class Tory, I throw down a challenge to Labour to meet us. If you are a union member and official, get in touch, let's sit down over a pint and discuss how Labour has let you down and how Ukip's policies represent the working classes. I am easy to contact.
There are other victims of the recent changes in immigration policy which have received far less attention. Amongst these are the non-EU spouses of British citizens earning less than £18,600. The government has targeted this group with the justification that their financial position makes their spouse a burden on the public purse.
The Speaker was within his parliamentary and moral right to speak and make the comments he made and in the context he made them. We should praise his courage and leadership in being truthful about issues that are unpopular.
Voting Ukip in any election will do nothing to solve the problems of the UK. But voting for the Conservatives or the Lib Dems will equally have little effect. Labour are closest to a progressive alternative to the economic status quo, but their message remains confused and poorly communicated.
Watching the BBC's The Apprentice, I am reminded of a show in last year's series when one of the contestants endlessly repeated 'What's the strategy? ...
The gruesome murder of Lee Rigby in broad daylight has opened a new front for another assault on multiculturalism. Already declared failed and dead, ...
Next week on Thursday 6 June the world's largest security firm G4S, will hold its annual general meeting in the City of London.
